Macro Man -
Subject: good reading
the abridged brief of evidence speaks for itself. leo is guilty without a shadow of doubt.
Subject: Great insight into Frank conviction
This is a great synopsis of what convicted Frank in the murder of Mary Phagan, namely the discrepancies in the timeline the day of the murder. In particular, Monteen Stover's testimony that Frank was not in his office at the time of the murder was, quite literally, damning to Frank.
Subject: Definitely guilty!
With all the evidence and witnesses testimonies about his bad character there can't be any doubt that Leo Frank could have been the only one who raped and cruely murdered Mary Phagan.
This book shows in detail how Leo Frank had gotten a fair chance in court and even though he tried to fool the court and also scapegoat an innocent negro with the murder, This book shows in detail how Leo Frank has gotten a fair chance in court and even though he tried to fool the court and also scapegoat an innocent negro with the murder, in the end has gotten his deserved verdict.
Subject: The evidence is there
I do not think there is anything that suggests that Leo Frank was innocent based on the evidence. Leo got really arrogant and thought that he could play the good people of Georgia by making it seem like a black person did it when he didn't. The work shows that Leo was not deprived of any defense in court and had all opportunity to defend himself.
Subject: Bigotry begets bigotry
It's really funny how this reviewer pretends that Tom Watson is an objective analyst. He was a bigot, whose writings are easy to find - they supported the KKK, were anti-black, anti-semitic and anti-Catholic. And he persecuted Leo Frank, inciting the lynching that took his life. And Watson celebrated the lynching afterward! Please check nout the writings of this supposed objective analyst and you'll understand why his words, 100 years later, are just as false today as they were then.
Subject: Closing Speeches
The final arguments of the Leo M. Frank case were a very interesting read (Arnold, Rosser, Hooper and Dorsey). It would have been nice had Lawson spent more time on the two year appeals process. There seemed to be way too much trimming of the trial testimony republished from the official Leo Frank trial Brief of Evidence (1913) record. The five books on the Leo Frank trial by Tom Watson (Jan, March, August, September and October 1915) are an absolute required reading for anyone interested in the Leo Frank case. The Murder of Little Mary Phagan, by Mary Phagan Kean is a great read to follow up with after reading the five works by Tom Watson. Then read the brief of evidence, and it should all come together clearly.
Subject: Good overview of the Leo M. Frank Case
An enjoyable read, but Lawson chopped out a lot of trial testimony damaging against Leo Frank. The arguments, appeals chronology and lynching are properly covered and with good details.
